Dear Friends of Three Sticks,
First things first, we have redesigned and refreshed our website. We feel it better reflects who we are by telling our story and introducing our team and vineyards to you with vibrant photos and descriptions. I invite you to take a look and check it out for yourself. www.threestickswines.com
Second, on Thursday, August 5 from 5:30 to 7:30pm at Wedekind’s Garden Center, 21095 Broadway in Sonoma — Margo and Don Van Staaveren will be competing for a good cause! To benefit the Sonoma Valley School Garden Project come sip Three Sticks and Chateau St. Jean wines while shopping and enjoying an evening of live music. 10% of all proceeds go to the SVSGP. No purchase or RSVP necessary.
Finally, and most importantly — Three Sticks is opening its doors to our loyal customers and friends for our Second Annual Open House of 2010. The event is on Saturday, August 7th. We are holding this event to celebrate the success of our current vintage and offer a sneak peak of our 2008 Durell Chardonnay and 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon which will be released in September. For the first time ever we will also be doing barrel tastings of our 2008 Cabernet – always a treat! If you haven’t met the Three Sticks team yet, we will all be there. Similar to our other open house parties, we are holding this event in concert with nine other wineries from the neighborhood:
The Eighth Street Wineries. The Eighth Street Wineries include Kamen, Tin Barn, Parmelee Hill among others, each of which you can visit at your leisure.
One ticket gets you in to all the festivities. This promises to be another exceptional event! Come preview the Fall release, sample our fabulous Cabernet Sauvignon barrel tastings and sip a little of our current Pinot Noir release: just awarded 91 points from Wine Spectator. Be prepared for special offerings, food, wine and a terrific local atmosphere.
For event information and to buy tickets click on this link: Eighth Street Wineries. The event is from 11am – 4pm and starts at MacRostie Winery: 21481 Eighth Street East, Sonoma where you can purchase your ticket in person and pick up your tasting glass for the entire day. Tickets are $30.
Hope to see you there,
– Bill Price
